Recap!!! RESUME …


 CV's are called a variety of things (e.g., curriculum vitae, resume). No universally accepted format . Most important attribute: Clearly explains to the reader what it is that you can do for them. Your CV should be: - A well-presented, selling document - A source of interesting, relevant information - A script for talking about yourself


 Purpose of your CV is not to get you the job. Its purpose is to get you an interview and remind the person you met with about you. Remember : you are not writing a CV for yourself, you are writing it for the reader. So, as you write your CV, put yourself in the shoes of the intended reader. – USER FRIENDLY

Principles and Guidelines: :

Principles and Guidelines : Generally , not more than 2 pages. Sometimes, a one page summary is all that is required.  Your CV should be honest and factual .  The first page should contain enough personal details for a recruitment consultant or potential employer to contact you easily . 


Choose a presentation format that allows you to headline key skills, key achievements or key attributes.  Your Employment History (Work Experience)/Projects/Trainings should commence with your current or most recent job and work backwards . 


Achievements should be short, bullet-pointed statements and include your role, the action you took and a comment on the result of your action. 

Important Note::

Important Note: Where information clearly supports your suitability for the vacancy you're applying for, and enhances your chances of being short-listed, include this information near the beginning of the CV.  (e.g. Professional Summary/Work Exp./Specializations/Projects)


Leave out information that is irrelevant or negative.  Include details of recent training or skills development events you have attended which could be relevant.  List all your professional associations/ memberships and relevant qualifications.

Don't forget::

Don't forget: The ultimate test of YOUR CV is whether it meets the needs of the person making the buying decision, and whether YOU feel comfortable with its content and style.

More Tips!:

More Tips! A good quality paper Avoid Full Stops at the end of POINTS . Don't make the margins too deep or too narrow Resist writing lengthy paragraphs - be concise Careful use of bold type can be effective


Typefaces such as Times New Roman or Arial are fairly standard Do not use a font size less than 11pt. Check for spelling or typographical errors Don't rely on a spell checker
